In order to avoid major power outages, leading energy providers' software developers rely on DDS geographic data. The data we deliver help software developers, such as CUBIS/POLIS in Hamburg, produce an effective display of grid networks and their characteristics. Maps are produced on the basis of our geographic data that depict, for instance which line is supplied from where, as well as the location of freeway intersections or overhead lines.

Count on our data, too and utilize, for instance:

  • Digital Data Streets, the detailed road network based on HERE (formerly Navteq) or TomTom, is available for Europe as well as for the USA. The road network contains all vehicle-access roads and routes with indication of the highway type plus additional information. This includes place files, street indexes, populated areas, inshore waters, public facilities and "points of interest" (stations, hotels, shopping centers). The dataset attains a resolution of 5m in urban areas and 25m in rural areas.
  • Land Usage Data: In addition to Digital Data Streets we also offer highly accurate and up to date land usage data for the whole of Germany. These allow you to identify at a glance the edges of built-up or unsettled areas, for example.
  • Distance Tables for the fastest calculation of distance from A to B. DDS provides distance tables clearly organized by starting point, destination, distance and driving time. Computed distances and driving times to all German and European locations of interest to you are individually tailored to your own sites.
  • Sociodemographics, i.e. the use of infrastructure and household data. Using the social demographic basic data you are able to draw upon population details, for instance.

DDS can provide you with all the data you require as energy provider, or likewise as software supplier to energy providers, to prevent massive power outages. From digital maps to customized data, to tools and software – and of course the entire data package including introduction and training, if required.
